Apple v. Motorola brought back from the dead for another round

A U.S. appeals court has revived previously-dismissed patent cases which Apple and Motorola Mobility had brought against each other. The cases had originally been consolidated in the Northern Illinois District of the U.S. District Court before being thrown out in June 2012 due to lack of evidence on both sides. Despite reviving Motorola's case, the appeals court ruled that Motorola could not press for a sales ban on Apple's products despite any patent infringement, due to the patent being standards-essential. Apple had been pursuing a case against Motorola Mobility involving the potential infringement of four patents.

iPhone vs. Android vs. BlackBerry vs. Windows Phone: Which phone should you get?

Apple has released the brand new, top-of-the-line, flagship iPhone 5s and less-expensive, colorfully fun iPhone 5c. But is either of them the right phone for you? While everyone here at iMore certainly believes the iPhone is still the best phone for most people, most of the time, we're lucky that every major platform now has one or more great phones for us to choose from as well. The iPhone may have the best overall user experience, the highest quality apps and games, the widest range of services, the biggest selection of accessories, and the best customer support, but there are also things the iPhone doesn't offer that other phones do, like much larger screens, physical keyboards, high power cameras, greater hardware options, or simply no Apple about them. How do you know which one is for you? Keep reading!

ITC once again slapped down on Apple ruling, this time by Federal Appeals Court

Google and Motorola rumored to be working on X Phone to once again take on the iPhone

Google buys Motorola. Denies any plans to do anything with it. No one believes them. Flash forward. Rumors spread Google is doing something with them. Deep breath. It's rumored to be an "X Phone" designed, once again, to take on the iPhone.

That might sound silly until you realize it's been Samsung, not Google, who's had all the success in the market against Apple. Now that Google owns Motorola, it only makes sense they'd want that division to be profitable as well, and to be an insurance policy against the power of manufacturers like Samsung, the same way Android was an insurance policy against the power of BlackBerry and Microsoft at first, and then very quickly Apple.

Chicago judge tentatively dismisses Apple-Motorola patent case

Chicago judge Richard Posner has thrown out Apple and Motorola's jury trial set to start next Monday, calling their patent claims "frivolous" and "ridiculous". Posner had previously forbidden Apple from turning the case into a "popularity contest", which is certainly fair given the experts that Apple is prone to dragging out for these kinds of cases.
